What is the Church?
I wonder if the answer that many might give to the question (“What is a church?”) might be less than helpful; at times it may even be dangerous.  One’s understanding of what defines a church will have a direct impact on his or her expectation of church membership. The Bible actually has much to say about what a church is and what a church is supposed to do.

    The Transfiguration : Divine Affirmation & Perfect Peace
    One normal day three ordinary men were overwhelmed by the God of the universe who invaded time and space to deliver a message.  The message was profound, it struck awe and fear in the hearts of those who heard and saw, and it brought perfect peace in its wake.  In this awesome moment, Jesus is affirmed as the King of Glory and He brings incredible peace to all those who look to Him.

    The Good Confession : Answering the Hard Question
    Peter is known for speaking quickly, but sometimes he is recorded as saying things that are truly brilliant.  Peter is commended for answering correctly after Jesus asks, "Who do you day I am?"  In John chapter 6, Peter answers another of Jesus' questions with candor and sincerity.  Christians may be encouraged by Peter's answer today.

    The Baptism : A Marvelous Scandal
    The Baptism of Jesus is a remarkable moment in His earthly ministry.  Jesus humbles Himself beyond imagination, He is affirmed by the highest authority of all time, and sinners find a heavenly Father who delights in them because of the person and work of Jesus Christ.

    Marriage Defined and Defended
    Marriage has become a "wax nose" for many in our culture today, a thing to be shaped and molded as anyone sees fit.  The concept of marriage, however, goes back much further than many may realize.  The Bible has much to teach us about marriage and the value of this marvelous institution.  Marriage is clearly defined and held in high honor on the pages of holy Scripture.

    The Man From Nazareth : A Better Man
    Jesus is both God and man, and His humanity is just as essential to His person and work as His deity.  The reason for His humanity is the fallen sinfulness of every other human.  In order to make sinners able to enjoy the presence of God, Jesus lived the perfectly good and obedient life that the Father requires of all humans.  Jesus truly is the better man and the perfect representative to take the place of sinful humanity.

    The Incarnation : God With Us
    In a sense, it is right to say that Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem to His mother, Mary.  Yet, in another sense, it is right to say that the One called Jesus had no beginning at all.  Both God and man, Jesus Christ is the supremely unique Son of God.  While the concept of Jesus' two natures (deity and humanity) may boggle our minds, the reality of this union in the person of Jesus Christ is the central focal point of Christianity.

    Two Things That Matter Most
    There are many questions that one might answer that would reveal a tremendous amount of information.  Two questions like this are the subject of this message.  First, Do you believe the Gospel?  Second, Do you now, or are you willing to submit yourself to authority of the Scriptures?  How you answer these two questions will say much about you, and Pastor Marc answered both of them in his inaugural message at FBC Diana.
